The superstar of Redemption is widely known as a key rfile of contemporary existential proposal and an important contribution to Jewish theology within the 20th century. An confirmation of what Rosenzweig known as the recent thinking,” the paintings ensconces logic within the position of summary, conceptual philosophizing and posits the validity of the concrete, person man or woman over that of "humanity" generally. Fusing philosophy and theology, it assigns either Judaism and Christianity certain yet both vital roles within the non secular constitution of the realm and reveals in either biblical religions methods towards a comprehension of reality.
